Big Boy Bedroom Inspiration



The time has finally come that I get to change my son's nursery into a big boy bedroom! He turned 2 years old in September and I have been pondering ideas since before his birthday of what we could do. My first thought was to go full on nautical themed and while I love the colors and will be using that color scheme I also want to incorporate other things that he loves as well. 

My son has a deep love for airplanes and "boy stuff" so I wanted to be able to have a variety of object in the decor and not just boats. I recently remembered that some time ago I pinned this adorable wall decal from the Etsy shop House Hold Words and I realized it
 was perfect!


I want to use this decal but instead it is going to say Planes, Trains, Boats and Toys which helps incorporate all the elements of the room that I want. So with this being the main focal point above his bed I will decorate with items that include planes, trains and boats. 


Here are swatches of the fabric I will be using. The color scheme I am using is a light blue, navy blue, red, white and a grey.


I am a huge fan of pennant banners and love the way they look when added to a bedroom or party decor so when I saw this one on Etsy by Blue Moon Studios I knew I wanted to make something similar but using my color scheme above.


I found this adorable room set up over at Pottery Barn Kids and fell in love with the theme of trains. It is such a great idea and of course the colors match my vision for my son's room as well.


This bedroom has to be my favorite that I came across over at Thrifty Decor Chick. While it is an all plane themed bedroom the colors and accents are beautiful together and she did a great job putting together her son's bedroom. My favorite has to be this wooden plane as well as the propeller she painted and hung on the wall.


Over at Posh Paper Parties Co you can find this adorable pennant banner for sale but I not only like the banner I absolutely love the display and the entire bedroom's colors and the pillows.


Lastly I love this bedroom that was shown on Project Nursery. My favorite part is that you get to see the light blue color of the walls mixed with the navy curtains and bedding and the pennant banners. My son's wall have been painted a light blue since moving into our new house so this has given me a great idea of what his room will come together to look like.
